The death tax is a failed economic policy and is in direct conflict with the desire to preserve and protect our nation’s family-owned farms and ranches. Each year livestock producers are forced to make tough choices and expend limited resources for estate tax planning purposes rather than investing in their operation. Furthermore, it is all too often that we see farming and ranching families forced to sell land, equipment, or part of their operation in order to pay the taxes at the time of death.
This survey, hosted by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), has been designed to evaluate the impact of the death tax on the U.S. livestock industry. While evidence shows the estate tax raised $17.9 million in revenue in 2015, to better illustrate what a failed economic policy this is, your survey answers will help quantify the sacrifices producers make to set aside resources on an annual basis for estate tax planning.
Your participation will help build the case to repeal the death tax, once and-for-all.
